If I have completed a previous ICA qualification will I be exempt from any modules on further qualifications?
You will not be exempt from any modules if you have studied a related subject, however, if you have a related qualification and enough relevant work experience you may be eligible to apply for the exam-only route of a Diploma. In order to do this you will need to send us your CV with your application which will be reviewed by a course director to ensure you have enough relevant experience.
What do I do if I can’t complete my assignment on time?
Depending on the circumstances behind the failure to complete the assignment, an extension may be granted. Being busy at work is not considered a good enough reason as the course has been designed to run alongside full time employment. Each request for an extension is reviewed by the ICA assessments team who will advise of the new submission date if relevant. Please note that candidates are only allowed one extension per programme.
